If the Fungi Forums alone decided the presidential election, who would win? Vote here!

---------------------------------

I'm going Obama for three reasons:

1) A couple years ago, I bet my sister ten bucks that the next President would be either black or female. I was very pleased by the Democratic primary race. :)

2) McCain is too old. The older a brain is the harder it learns things, the harder it changes its mind based on new information, and the easier it goes crazy.

3) I'm "liberal".

I'd support Obama, because he appears to be the least stupid of the two main candidates, but since you asked about the Fungi Forums alone, I think Deezer and MB might win.
That was a joke.

Were I in a sillier mood, I might have voted for Deezer/MEGAߥTE.  Seriously, I'm going for McCain.  For me, he's the lesser of two evils, I can't stand the thought of Obama in office.  Not because he's black, because he's:

1. Inexperienced

2. Will tax us until we're wearing barrels

3. "Liberal"

I think Palin would make a better president than McCain, actually...Wouldn't this thread be under the category of "political discussion?"

I was going to vote for Chuck Baldwin, but I think Palin has pretty much swayed me over to McCain. I won't vote for Obama because Marxism has never worked out very well. And I also echo the "Hey, isn't this political discussion?" question.

I'm conservative, but I don't really like McCain. He made a bad decision picking Palin as his running mate (I don't dislike her, but she really needs more years under her belt), and he's really more liberal than he lets on. I really wish the canadite was Mitt Romney, but that isn't the case. I'll vote for McCain only because not voting is really, really stupid and voting for a third party canadite is a huge waste.

LD's idea was simple and didn't necessarily require discussion. Listing your reasons is one thing. That said:
Turtlekid, I would advise you to take a moment to use your mind, if possible and compare Palin's amount of "experience" to Obama's.
That was a joke.

You do realize that McCain's tax plan will tax all but the very rich more, while most people will actually get tax cuts under Obama.  Look it up rather than believing the talking points.

I can't stand the thought of Obama in office.  Not because he's black, because he's:
1. Inexperienced

I think Palin would make a better president than McCain, actually
This is a huge contradiction since Palin has less experience than Obama.

(And just FYI, I'm not pro-Obama either, just saying your arguments are ridiculous).

After much thought, I have to support the Obama and Biden (and the Democratic Party as a whole), even though I do not agree with all their views. The Libertarian Party best reflects my views, but even then I find myself disagreeing with their strongest points of corporate deregualtion. Such a shame they are so small! Curse America's two-party system.

Did you just say that? You did not just say that.


Edit: I spent 42 minutes thinking over this post.  And I don't even have a vote.

I'm for McCain.  I actually dislike McCain very much but here's the reasons why I would vote for him:

1)  His vice president and how she plans to really change this country for the better

3)  I'm "conservative"  (extremely conservative actually,  I fit more in the catagory of constitutionalist)

I'm voting Nader in '08 because

1) He's got a lazy eye so he can see in multiple directions

2) He proved something about cars or something

3) I thought starting a political discussion would get you pushed off a building

Are you kidding me? Nadar is running again?!

EDIT: Doh! It's Nader, not "Nadar."
